This is an account of the time
I was collected up and buried alive
Down there in the peace and the quiet
I could nap all day and sleep all night
It was an accident
I rang my little bell
They brought shovels and pails
Apologized for weeks til I got well

This is an account of the time
I was abandoned on a desert island
My analyst there told me I was going crazy
But what does he know? He's a bird
It was an accident
The boat came back that night
Asked if I was alright
And "would you help us row if you don't mind?"

This is an account of the time
I was arrested for a crime that wasn't mine
So what if I keep all my money
In a duffel bag in the trunk of my car?
It was an accident
The detective got it wrong
I never said I had a bomb
And I don't know how to work a parachute

This is an account of the time
I was elected president by a landslide
From the back of the train car I waved
And said Americans were dumb and God was dead
It was an accident
I said it was a joke
They said "recount the votes!"
They chased me down the street with pitchforks
